This week’s Q&As below:
‘My Husband and I Didn’t Have Sex for 20 Years & I Confessed to Cheating on Him’
I am a 42 year old woman and have been married for 20 years now. My husband and I have had no sex in all these 20 years. There was a moment when I got frustrated, when I was 27, and I had sex with a kind man in my building. Sex was not in the agenda, but it happened and I didn’t stop myself. I lived with guilt for many years. The guilt of cheating on my husband, who is a loving person was eating me up so badly that I felt suicidal many times. Last week, I opened up about my liaison to my husband. He hugged me and said “I forgive you”. However after that he has been behaving a little different with me. I have tears in my eyes as I write to you, because just a while ago he asked me if I am more interested in sucking cocks than keeping clothes neatly in the cupboard. I was told that a woman’s body is a temple and I allowed it to get impure. This is going to be used against me again and again. I don’t know if I should have not told him at all? What do I do?
Dear Ms Secret,
Thank you for sharing this private moment of your life with me.
Making love is a part of the entire expression of love. And your caring and loving husband should be sensitive to your sexual needs as well. He should have no right to comment or lament if he has played no role in addressing your sexual needs or has brought it up with you.
He might be a good person otherwise, but that doesn’t win respect.
Men seriously need to stop putting women on a pedestal. Some of these pedestals are basically a way to keep women far away from their reality. I make no bones about the fact that I detest men who treat women in the extremes of a devi and a whore.
Men need to also realise that they demean themselves when they make superhumans of women. If we hold high benchmarks for a women’s body equating it to a temple of sanctity and purity, what are men’s bodies… A gutter?
Sorry, I digressed. I don’t judge you for acting on your sexual desires a few many moons back. I suggest that you do not do it either.
Please do not place your husband on a pedestal. Bring up your desires (and how he failed you) with him. Speak to him with empathy and understanding. May be he has an issue that you could help with? However, do not take his insults lying down.
P.S. Empathise, but also fight back.
‘My Boyfriend Looks at Me Sexually and I Find It Intimidating’
My boyfriend finds me sexy in underwears. He ensures that whenever we are together, I am always in an underwear. He looks at me weirdly and sexually when I pull down my trousers. And he gets terribly upset when I do not have an erection when he pulls my pant down. The issue is that I do not feel sexual when someone is staring at me sexually. I rather find it intimidating. How do I explain this to him.
Unhappy and Gay
Dear Unhappy and Gay,
Consent is the truest form of love.
Tell him you don’t appreciate him looking at you sensually when you are undressed. Tell him that you don’t like undressing everytime.
More importantly, tell him that your erection is no measure of the love you have for him. Without respect, there is no love.
On that note, I hope he wins this test of love.
P.S. I love you.

‘I Am Worried My Girlfriend Will Get Pregnant After Oral Sex’
I am in severe tension. My girlfriend and I were alone and we moved from first base to the subsequent bases quite quickly. She sucked my penis and since it was happening for the first time in my life, I got excited easily. I wanted to experience it like it is in porn films, so I came on her mouth. She got disgusted and we stopped. She quickly gargled out my cum. We didn’t not have sex because she got disappointed. I am worried that she would get pregnant.
Dear Probable Father,
First things first – the probability of you becoming a father because of oral sex is zero. Sperm has to be deposited into the vagina for a possible pregnancy.
Please understand sperms are like lazy people. They don’t travel too much or work too hard. They will not brave the entire travel from the mouth to the vagina internally.
Now to the first part of your question.
P.S. You are not going to be a father. Not this time.
